>As we grow older there is constant pressure and advice from everyone, even those you don’t know, as to what you should do with your life. These inhibitions also come from ourselves a lot of times. We experience something one way and really step off the trodden path to try something different.
A common phrase that people like to use is, “Don’t burn all your bridges.” so if something happens you will have something to fall back on, but I recently had a musician who gave me this advice, “Burn all your bridges,” it will force you to strive for what you want and become what you want to become without the inhibitions and a chance to give up.
Recently I have felt the desire to step from the pavement to the gravel road and try things a different way. Stretch my limits and comfort zone.
If you’re feeling frightened about what comes next, don’t be. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind as you create your own path towards happiness, don’t waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment, as it comes; because you’ll never get another one quite like it.
Anias Nin once said, “Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.” To give up is to die in your pursuit of who you truly are.
A life twice lived is a life wasted.
